Is he taking the piss out of Ed Miliband by doing his job for him?
Suggests that he doesn't have much confidence in George's recovery to keep going until after the election.
Seems like he suddenly believes in global recessions.
If only he had to insight and contrition to realise and acknowledge that his government have been instrumental in stymieing any attempts to seriously reform the financial sector, have pursued policies that have led to the patrolling of wealth at the top of the economy and the increase in personal debt at the bottom, and he'd also realise that the UK's recovery has been built on the sand foundations of zero-hours contracts, plummeting productivity, PPI payouts and house price inflation.
It had all been planned to pop after the 2015 election, but it now looks like it might hit a few months early.
= atrophying of wealth, obviously.
that's the one you went for?!
They'll gradually ramp up the fear over the next few months, and then start the narrative that the recovery is incredibly fragile and if Labour get in they'll mess it up. If people are scared of the economy collapsing, they'll be much less likely to vote for Labour.
just seemed like a kind of edgy strategy.
